Print on demand books for the independent author haven't just leveled the playing field, they've changed the nature of the game. It is now cost-effective to print books as needed, not relying on offset printers to churn out thousands of books to justify the fixed costs.
What is an eBook? An eBook is a digital version of your manuscript that consist of text, images, or both. An eBook can be read on most mobile devices, all of which can hold hundreds of titles at once. It's like taking a library with you on the go.

BookBaby's BookShop helps self-published authors unlock the full profit potential of Print On Demand by keeping books stocked 24/7/365, paying authors more per sale, and paying faster than the big online retailers.
The longer your book is available for pre-order, the more time you have to send readers to Amazon and the other stores to accumulate orders. All these orders count as sales on your release date, giving you a good chance at cracking some top-100 best seller sub genre lists in sites like Barnes & Noble and Powell’s. Note: this is not the case with Amazon’s best selling list. They count pre-sales orders on the day it’s actually ordered, not all combined on the eventual release date.
